On The Pitch

One change to 19-man squad

Head coach Tim Sheens has made just one change to his 19-man squad to face Widnes Vikings at KCOM Craven Park on Saturday (3.15pm).

Stand-off Jordan Abdull returns to the 19 and his in contention to make his return to first team action after overcoming a foot injury and playing for the reserves against St Helens last week.
Abdull replaces Robbie Mulhern in an otherwise unchanged squad from that named for the 30-18 victory over Featherstone Rovers last time out.

Saturday is poised to be a vital game for both clubs with a victory for either side leaving them in a strong position to secure a place in Super League next season. Rovers could even secure promotion this weekend with a victory over the Vikings providing Warrington Wolves also beat Leigh Centurions in a game which kicks off at 3pm on Saturday afternoon.

1 Adam Quinlan
